Enraged Slith

Through the Filth Factory, still using a crude halberd

Recommended Posts

Yo, where’s all my neato swag at? Two plagues down, I shouldn’t still be rolling with base level gear; it wasn’t like this in the old days

 

Miss my 6 man parties and bless stacking. Not feeling like #3 translated as well to the more streamlined experience

There is a steel halberd in a cache nw of poulsbo (east of Lorelei (sp?)).  Go up and get it asap.  Not sure what nature lore is required.  I like to start games off by getting the good items at the beginning as much as possible.  Carmine can make you a nice sword as well after you do the goblin/bandit lair (you'll have the 1000 gp by then).  You can also quickly get 4/5 stone circles if you want.  There is a steel shield N of appleton and a steel broadsword east of poulsbo on a body. 

 

The item index lists a steel shortsword N of Libras, into in the gremlin valley a bit hidden by the mountain wall..I verified it, it's there.

 

There are probably other easy to obtain items.

If I recall correctly, you were rewarded the Lava-Fired Spear for defeating the source of the slime plague. A Crude Halberd is pretty much on the same level, actually, just without the magical bonuses.

It’s a spear for magic users and lacks splash damage. That was awfully deflating. The game seems to throw a lot of minor trinkets and spells at you instead of outfitting your meat heads. I just want some feedback here so that I can feel like a good little boy for investing in polearms when the skill tree doesn’t even support it.

 

need to dual-wield halberds, Jeff. What else are Slithzerikai good for?

It worked fine for me until I picked up a Crude Halberd, which I used to great effect until I eventually found a Bronze Halberd somewhere. Or maybe that was the Molten Halberd.

I got good pole arms long before I got good swords.  It seemed like it took a long timer for my dual wield fighter to pass my pole arm fighter.

The lava-fired spear helping mages was a mistake. Much better for warriors in v102.

I equipped my Mage with it in A:CS as well due to the magical damage bonus.

Mine kept it throughout the assorted hikes across the surface for just that reason. 8%(?) is a 'real' nice damage boost when you're dealing out big spells towards the end game.
